PE Challenge

How are you getting on within training like a jedi? 

The full workout is shown at the beginning, the warm up begins about 4 minutes in and then from 6 minutes the individual moves are shown for you to have a go with. Perseverance will be needed, but who said being a Jedi would be easy?

J K Rowling's new book

J.K. Rowling released a new book at the beginning of half term. It is called ‘The Ickabog’.

She would like children to illustrate the book for her. follow the link below to The Ickabog website for more details.

One or two chapters of the book are uploaded daily until July 10th. All the previous chapters are available too - so you can start reading from the beginning.

Blue Peter - Six Badges of Summer.

Red Week - Sport

Did you complete your Green Week badge last week? Your World Ocean Day activities might count towards your Green Badge.

This week is Red Week - linked to sport.

To earn your Red Badge, you need to try a new physical activity - although it could be something that was new to you during the lock down period.

Follow the link to have a look on the website for tips on how you can take part.

If you haven't already, you can download a wall chart  to keep track of your Six Badges of Summer progress.  Let us know what you're doing by uploading your pictures and videos of your creations via Seesaw.

Remember to ask an adult at home to help you apply for your badge once you have met the Red Week Challenge.
